AAEC-South Mountain FFA receives "Living to Serve" Grant from National FFA Organization.
INDIANAPOLIS (Monday, October 2, 2023/National FFA Organization) – The AAEC-South Mountain FFA chapter in Phoenix, Arizona, has been awarded a Fall Semester-Long Living to Serve Grant of $700.00. The nationwide program provides grant money to local FFA chapters to support semester-long service-learning projects that address needs related to community safety, environmental responsibility, hunger, health and nutrition, and community engagement during the fall semester.
AAEC-South Mountain FFA plans to help address the community's trash by hosting Street Clean-Ups to promote safe, clean, and beautiful streets for local residents. Chapter members volunteer their time and energy to pick up litter along Baseline Rd. from 16th to 24th St. Completing a Street Clean-Up every month will battle the amount of litter on our streets currently as well as decrease the amount over time as more and more students start to serve our community.
The program provided over $75,000 to FFA chapters in 28 states. Tractor Supply Company and Cargill sponsor the 2023 Fall Semester-Long Living to Serve Grants. For more information and a complete listing of sponsors, visit FFA.org/livingtoserve.
